The Executive Cabinet is one of the three arms of Student Government. It is made up of three elected officials and 7 appointed committee directors. The Executive Cabinet has the privilege of representing the needs of the student body at large. This includes the coordination of activities for students to attend, as well as representing the student body at Board of Trustees meetings and other meetings with University administration.
The Student Senate is RUSGA’s legislative branch. It is an organized body through which students’ ideas and opinions can be formulated, recognized, and pursued. The Senate allows students to effectively influence the policies that govern their activities. All recognized student clubs and organizations operate under the oversight of the Senate. Under the guidance of the Vice-President and 3 elected Class Representatives per grade level, the Senate works to foster strong relationships between students and administration, faculty, and staff while encouraging sense of campus community at Regis.
